Simplified DPC repair

The complexity of building or repairing damp proof courses is simplified with Z-Led’s HTR refurbishment cavity trays.

The 2 ½ brick length is specifically designed for ease of sequential installation. Contractors simply remove sections of the course of brickwork, insert the HTR Refurbishment Tray, and replace the bricks, working along the course as required. The tray is designed to accommodate cavities of varying width, from 50mm upwards, without the need to build into the inner leaf.

To further help simplify the process, Z-Led manufactures internal and external corners and handed stop-ends. Each HTR tray includes an integral bedweep, which saves the need to add weepholes- a process often overlooked. Once installed, the trays slightly project from the wall, giving a neater finish and simultaneously reducing the risk of the dpc being pointed over which can create a bridge for damp.

Traditional code 4 lead or Aluflash, Z-Led’s environmentally-friendly lead alternative, can be factory fitted as an optional extra, eliminating any requirement for raking out of joints and pointing in flashing.

HTR Refurbishment Trays are just part of Z-Led’s comprehensive range of materials to defend buildings against damp and gas penetration, and optimise fire protection. Part of the Building Product Design Group, Z-Led (www.z-led.com) specialises in developing innovative yet practical solutions to meet changing demands in its specific markets.
